How does the Enphase Micro-Inverter Work?
The Enphase Energy Micro-inverter maximizes energy produced from a photovoltaic (PV) array. Each Enphase Energy Micro-inverter is independently coupled to one solar module in an array. This configuration means that an individual Maximum Peak Power Point Tracker (MPPT) operates each solar module. This insures that the greatest power available from each solar panel is sent to the grid regardless of the performance of the other PV panels in the array. Regardless of shading, soiling, orientation which would, affect individual solar panels in the array, or module mismatch, the Enphase Energy Micro-inverter insures peak performance for its coupled PV panel.
PV systems utilizing Enphase Energy Micro-inverters are very simple to install and design. No need string calculations, and install individual solar panels in any grouping of module quantity, model, age and orientation. No need to install bulky centralized or string inverters. Each Enphase Energy Micro-inverter easily mounts on the module racking, directly underneath each solar panel. Low voltage DC wires join from the solar panel directly to the co-located Enphase Energy Micro-inverter, eliminating the hazard of peoples exposure to deadly 600Vdc power.
